Do You Need an Athletic Mouthguard? (quiz)

Mouthguards 3 - Royal Oak, MI | North Oaks Dental

Thankfully, not too many of us will ever suffer an injury like the gruesome hit to the mouth that Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Ian Cole suffered during his team’s October 2017 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks. Still, if you’re involved in athletics, you can get a dental injury. According to the CDC, sports-related dental injuries lead to 600,000 visits to the emergency room every year.

The American Dental Association recommends wearing an athletic mouthguard for nearly 30 sports, from acrobatics to wrestling. And if you’re going to wear a mouthguard, it’s a good idea to get fitted for one at a dentist instead of buying one at a sporting goods store. The custom fit and durable construction will better protect your mouth.

The Royal Oak, MI dentists at North Oaks Dental are happy to fit you for an athletic mouthguard. Call 248-712-1522 to make an appointment or just to get more information. Still not sure you need an athletic mouthguard? Take this quiz to find out.
